I had to go to the CAB today, and saw a flier on their board for an organic-fairtrade-vegan place in Leytonstone—obviously newly opened, since I hadn't heard of it before. Their website is here; apparently they're "not officially open" yet, but the initial outlook is promising.

They have O-F-V jam/juice/snacks/pasta/&c., all the usual things one would expect, at a less-than-excruciating markup, and apparently will be getting a refill station for household goods soon. Also serves good coffee, though I would've preferred unsweetened soya in mine; if I wanted apple juice in my coffee, I'd say so. Fortunately, he was very receptive to the idea of something besides sweetened soya milk, even if he did start talking about trying coconut milk out tomorrow. He also makes vegetable soup, which I didn't try, and vegan chocolate & carrot cake. A comfortable sofa exists, and several small tables.

The lack of visible signs is a bit depressing (presumably he'll put the name of the shop up somewhere, eventually), but it's a pretty inviting place, and he did comment to me that he knew "going into a new shop can be a bit intimidating"—it's always refreshing when shop owners actually understand that!
